Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years with special interest in Exotics.

YOur Bunny is most likely in shock and very stressed. This situation is very serious. If she stops eating and passing stool she can go into a FI Stasis.

I suggest that you have her seen by a Vet today to be checked out. In the interim, try enticing to to eat a piece of carrot or a treat to get something going into her gut.

When grooming a Rabbit all we do is spot clean an area and not bathe the whole rabbit.

Make sure she has all the grass hay she can eat as well as her pellets and fresh food.

If you see she is not eating you will need to start emergency feeding of critical care and Pedialyte for fluids.

This is a link for Rabbit Vets:

http://rabbit.org/vet-listings/

I am very concerned and feel the best thing is to have her seen and make sure she has some supportive care.

Please hit reply to discuss this information and your concerns.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
